Bug Jar Shaker Kit...

Hey there! I am stopping in today with a couple new cards from the Bug Jar Kit.  This kit is filled with the most adorable toppings, an adorable stamp set and dies.  This kit is the perfect addition to the Love Jar kit which has its own stamps and toppings, but also includes the jar dies.  Check out the Queen and Company store to learn more about both kits.
(all supplies linked below)

I have 2 projects to share today.  This first card showcases the Jar shaker box and dies, along with some toppings from the Bug Kit....

Queen and Co

To create this card, I scored a white card base randomly with score lines.  I built the little shaker jar and added toppings from both the Love Jar Kit and the little bugs from the Bug Jar kit.  I also added the most adorable wooden stars.  Next, I stamped a sentiment on the tag and tied it on to the jar.  To finish off the card, I stamped and heat embossed a little butterfly stamp on vellum and attached it to the jar.

Queen and Co

This next project is a super simple little card set in a matching card holder...

Untitled

I cut 3, 3x4 card bases in white card stock. I took 3 sentiments and 3 adorable little bugs and stamped one on each of the cards.  I used Copics to quickly color each image.

Next, I made this little pocket and turned it into a card holder.  All three cards fit perfectly inside.  I thought this would be a fun little gift to give to a friend!

That is it for me today.  Head on over to the Queen and Company Store and check out these adorable kits.  Don't forgot to check out all their shaker boxes and toppings!

Hope you have a great day!

The other day I did a clean and simple card using these adorable birds colored up with a Copic marker.  Well....I kept coloring and coloring and made more birds and so I whipped up this quick and easy card...

Spellbinders

If you follow my blog, you know I love to score. And score some more.  So I did that hear.  I did several random score lines on the bottom half of the card.  Then I lined up those adorable birds along with a hello sentiment to finish it off.  Super easy!

Spellbinders

To finish off the little birds with one last detail, I added some liquid black enamel dots to their eyes.

MFT August Release Day!

Happy Release day at MFT!  The August Release is now live over at the MFT Store so head on over and grab your favorites.  I have one last peek of one of my favorite new dies....I am a nerd about the sentiment dies!  This new hello is so much fun!

MFT August 2018 Release

To create this card, I added in a little Copic rainbow down the middle of the card, popped up the stitched cloud die and then popped up the hello on top of that.  Super easy!  I do love all the white space.

MFT August Countdown Day 1...

Welcome to Day 1 of the August Release over at MFT.  I have a clean and simple peak of those adorable bird dies from last months kit called Birds of a Feather...

MFT August 2018 Release

I kept this card light and simple by creating a little scene with ink blended clouds, a little hill and then die cut that panel and popped it up on the card base.  Next I die cut and built those adorable little birds and added them to the scene.  

MFT August 2018 Release

There is also a new set called From All of Us that included the perfect sentiments when you are sending a card from your family.  I added that simple sentiment inside the card...

MFT August 2018 Release

CARDS


The main stamp set in the August My Monthly Hero set is absolutely adorable!  I love the coffee images and all the sentiments.  Here is my first card...

IMG_7037

To create this card, I did a simple watercolor wash on watercolor paper for a quick and easy background.  Next, I stamped and die cut 2 of the coffee cups and added a quick Copic splash of color to each cup.  I know that my friends and i all take our coffee differently, so I added a lighter version and a darker version.  (Mine is the one with all the cream and it ends up where I have a little coffee with my cream...haha!)  I used one of the latte images with a brown ink and then on the darker coffee, I added the latte art image in white ink.  Last, I stamped the sentiment off to the side and matted the whole card front in a kraft colored card stock.  

IMG_7039

When I saw this Fancy Window die, I knew it had to be a shaker card.  I die cut the window in white cardstock intending to add some color but when I saw it in white....I had to keep it that way.

IMG_7031

I created the shaker box and lined the back of it with a piece of rainbow patterned paper to make the white window details pop.  I added in some fun shaker makings and then added the thank you sentiment to the little sign. I attached the shaker box to a green card base which made that white die cut shine even more.

MFT August Countdown Day 2...

It's day 2 of the MFT Countdown.  Everything you are seeing this week will be available on Tuesday, August 7th at 8pm CST.  One more day of the countdown!

I have a card today showcasing the new set called Fluttering Friends!

MFT August 2018 Release

I love all of the dragonfly images and I figured a good way to use them all was to create a simple background.  I grabbed a piece miscellaneous stripped patterned paper and then stamped all the dragonflies across the paper.  Next, I die cut a panel with the Wonky Stitched Rectangles.  I used 2 sizes of the Stitched Fishtail Sentiment Strips and cut the larger one out in Vellum and the smaller one out in black card stock.  I heat embossed a sentiment with white embossing powder on the black banner.  I love the look of all those dragonflies stamped out for a super quick and easy card.

MFT August 2018 Release

The MFT Blog will have lots more to see.  Stay tuned for one more day of sneak peeks before release day on Tuesday.

Hope you are having a great day!  Thanks for stopping in!

Hi and welcome to Day 3 of the MFT August Release Countdown!  Thanks so much for coming by today!  I have a fun little peek today using 2 new products that will be available on Tuesday, August 7th at 8pm CST.

This card uses the new miss you die along with an adorable cat from the new set called Cute Cats....

MFT August 2018 Release

I kept this clean and simple but stamping the cat in a light brown Memento ink and then doing a little no-line coloring.  I die cut the miss you in fun foam and again in white card stock for a sentiment with some dimension.  To finish off this card, I added a tiny little heart die cut to the cat.  I love the tiny pop of color.  Tag Builder 5 die set has the best row of tiny little hearts.  I use them on all the projects!  :)

Here it is....

MFT August 2018 Release

To create this card, I used the new Puzzle Cover-up die and instead of cutting out all the pieces, I used it to dry emboss my card front.  I love the possibilities with this die!!  I added the embossed panel to a card base with fun foam for some dimension.  Then I cut out the center puzzle piece and added the sentiment.  I took a tiny die cut heart and added that to the puzzle piece too.  My CAS, white space loving heart is swooning over this die!  :)

Spellbinders Small Die of the Month...


Hi friends!  I am here today to share the new Small Die of the Month for Spellbinders.  They are adorable!!  Do you know about the die of the month?  It is an awesome subscription that gives you a brand new set of dies in the mail every month.  Here are a few more details....


Each month Spellbinders offers several different subscription clubs....





____________________________________

So this month's dies come with several dies including 3 adorable birds and some greenery....

Spellbinders

To create this card, I die cut the birds and the vines all in white cardstock.  I used Copics to add in the coloring and shading.  I used glue in a few select spots on the back of the greenery so I could have some of the leaves and vines stand out.  I stamped the Thank You sentiment in black ink. Next, I used foam tape to add the birds to the card front.  I finished off the card with black liquid enamel dots.
